Never been on the Dyno, but was street-tuned on 10-lbs by Toby at Advanced Engine Dynamics in Corona, CA. This was the initial tune after building the car but I never turned the boost up and the tune was basically perfect for daily driving and prolonging the 5 speed.

Next steps are turn on boost controller

Swap out waste gate spring

Built the car about 3 years ago and daily drove it for most of that time

Changed the oil only with Motul 5w-40 and Subaru factory filters after break in oil changes.

Not a single oil change including the very first one has ever shown signs of engine wear

Build has ~10k miles

Chassis ~185k

Somewhere in storage I have all of the waste gate springs, unequal length exhaust manifold setup, really cool transmission mount (forgot the brand). Probably some other stuff I can’t remember

We can’t afford to have a race car and don’t have room at our apartment for cars without tags (per our lease)

As a Subaru enthusiast and professional technician, this is the nicest driving WRX that I’ve experienced and I’d love to give interested parties a ride down the street.

I’m going to be putting it into storage until it sells.
